Short Film The Thought of You Plot, Star Cast And Review
This film, starring Kalki Koechlin, Gulshan Devaiah, and Monica Dogra, tells the story of a vulnerable couple’s tragic night.
The scene begins with K (Kalki) and Gulshan Devaiah fighting in their automobile late at night and getting into a collision. The story is told in bits, going back and forth between the vehicle battle and the party where the couple had been drinking earlier that evening. Because of the fragmentary narration, there’s an air of creepy anticipation, with shivers of that ‘knowing’ feeling coming your way because you know what’s coming but keep praying you’re wrong (at least, I hope you think you’re wrong!).
Kalki and Gulshan clearly have issues, and Kalki appears to be a bit of a deranged, psycho-controlling freak with terrible mood swings and trust issues. Kalki loses it when she sees her husband and her friend Monica (Monica Dogra) flirting as she goes to get some ice and forces Gulshan to leave the party with her and drive back intoxicated.

This isn’t a good idea. The film puts you on a roller coaster ride of tension and terrifying thrill that keeps you on the edge of your seat. You should stay tuned to the very end because you won’t want to miss it.
Also, perhaps because the film was filmed so realistically that it appeared to be unfolding in front of your eyes rather than on some distant screen, I was able to connect with the characters and stories very fast and very well. It appeared to make the experience even more terrifying, and it made me wonder about human nature in general. Perhaps what author Graham Greene has claimed is correct.
The plot is engrossing, and the film is well-directed overall. The script isn’t my favorite, but it’s not obtrusive or out of place with the rest of the movie. In these circumstances, this little film truly shines. Also, the song selection was dark and spot-on.

I believe that it depends on the type of person that you are. If you enjoy puzzles that make you rethink where the lines between black and white should be drawn, this is the book for you. If that’s the case, you’re good to go. You can also treat yourself if you just want to relax and enjoy 15 minutes of excellent acting and production. You might have to test the waters yourself if you’re anyone else.
K (Kalki) is a resentful and insecure wife, with the kind of mental instability we’ve come to expect from Kangana Ranaut’s on-screen personas. Even in the first scene, when the three of them are kidding around over a few drinks, she appears to create a twang to counteract the other woman’s American accent. When she later had a quarrel with her spouse, this faded. Perhaps there’s a cause for her demeanor: perhaps her spouse has already cheated on her, or perhaps she fears that her mental “downswings” would drive him to another woman. In any case, within the first few minutes, the politics of this equation are made very evident.
I’m a bit of a classic; I appreciate being surprised by an impossible plot twist and then rewinding to examine the buildup in detail. The Thought Of You doesn’t let me accomplish that, but it does make me feel as powerful as the storyteller by allowing me to predict the climax’s exact anatomy moments before it unfolds. This, too, is a satisfying sensation. I’m not sure if it was done on purpose or if it is something else. However, when a drama doesn’t try too hard to trick us, the experience becomes even more uncomfortable – and a little more human.
Kalki Koechlin Short Film Conclusion
In fact, I believe that if the theme had been explored a little further, they could have brought in the context of the importance of getting a psychological consultation every now and then for everyone, similar to regular health check-ups, so that we begin to pay attention to a person’s mental health.
